World football governing body (FIFA) may have set the machinery in motion to probe the series of allegation of financial recklessness levelled against top officials of the Nigeria Football Federation (NFF).
Former international, Harrison Jalla, had complained to the Investigatory Chamber of the Ethics Committee of FIFA on December 5, 2018, alleging reckless spending by some top officials of the NFF.
After waiting for response for one month, Jalla wrote another letter to FIFA on January 26, 2019, requesting for information on the ‘current status’ of his complaint.
However, the Investigatory Chamber of the Ethics Committee of FIFA said in its response made available to The Guardian: “We acknowledge receipt of and have taken note of your correspondence.
“In this regard, we express our appreciation for the information provided and would like to point out that in accordance with art. 58 par. 1 of the FIFA Code of Ethics (FCE), any person may file a complaint regarding potential breaches of the FCE with the Secretariat of the Investigatory Chamber.
